Inspired by the quilted jackets on this years Sewing Bee, we certainly were. That’s why we’ve launched a brilliant class to help you make your own stunning jacket!
The perfect slow sewing project to treasure.
In this class our amazing quilting tutor Laura will show you how to create your quilted fabric. Then Amanda will take you step by step through the process of constructing your timeless jacket, using the Grainline Studio Tamarack Jacket sewing pattern. The Tamarack Jacket is a warm and stylish quilted coat perfect for spring and Autumn layering, or summer if you live in Scotland! There are two quilting designs to choose from and you’ll stay toasty thanks to the inner layer of cotton or wool batting, while the roomy welt pockets will keep your belongings safe and your hands warm.
In this class you will be introduced to basic quilting, inserting a welt pocket, and applying bias binding.
Grainline Studio have sized the Tamarack Sewing Pattern 0-18. Size 0 measures bust, 81cm: waist 63cm: hips 89cm. Size 18 is bust 112cm, waist 93cm, hips 119cm. Please contact us before booking if your measurements fall outside of this – there is a PDF version of the pattern which runs size 14-30, but we will need to know in advance if you need this downloaded and assembled.
We will provide you with your own copy of the Grainline Studio Tamarack Pattern, which is yours to keep and make again and again. We also provide all of the kit you need from sewing machines to pins we have everything ready and waiting for you in out brilliant studio. The wadding you need for your jacket is included with the class as is any interfacing and thread you need so all you need to worry about if finding the perfect fabric and bias binding if you are not making your own.
